(hed)p.e. has released its first single from their upcoming new album Class Of 2020. The track is called “First Blood“, and a lyric video for the track is available below. The band’s frontman, Jared Gomes, offered the following about the band’s upcoming album:
“I wanted it to sound like the best garage band ever. Like you went to your friend’s band practice and were totally blown away. This track kicks off the record and I can’t wait to open the show with it at a club near you. It will fuckin’ shred. One guitar, one bass, one riddim, one mic. Definitely some ’70s punk rock influence. The Clash and Minor Threat were on my mind a lot. The pendulum swung and whereas the last album was futuristic, this one is bare bones. These tracks will translate in the club. Straight up non-apologetic ‘merican rock and roll.”
Class Of 2020 is set to release on August 21st through Suburban Noize. Pre-orders are available here.
